Most Anticipated 2018 Books
Happy New Year to all our fabulous readers! We wish you a year full of joy, happiness, and great reads. In December I spent more time planning my reads for next year than I have doing any actual reading. Overall, 2017 was a pretty good reading year for me. I really enjoyed the Man Booker nominees and I read a lot of great literary fiction. We are hoping that this year brings us even better books. Below are a few books that are coming out in the first half of 2018 to help you plan your reading year. What are your plans for 2018?
